Nonprofit jobs, services impacted by state funding reductions

A recent survey conducted by the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement indicates that when state funding is reduced nonprofits have no alternative but to reduce service hours to clients, eliminate employee benefits and lay off workers.

The fiscal 2018 state budget reduced grant funding by more than $25 million, including $8.6 million of grant-in-aid dollars, according to the December 2017 expenditures report from the Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council.
